    Houston, Texas - Houston Football returned to practice on Saturday evening and hosted a lengthy scrimmage in front of a large crowd of fans at Robertson Stadium.

    As you would expect from the first scrimmage of the spring there were plenty of jitters and while the team committed a few penalties and had some drops in the passing game, there were some solid performances under the lights, including the play of the defense.

    Houston's defense continued to show well this spring, coming up with several stops and holding the offense to just 31 points, 14 of which came in situational play when the ball started on their half of the field.

    The offense opened the scrimmage and marched down the field only to be sniffed out by a Chris Cermin interception on David Piland in the endzone. That was the only turnover of the night and while Piland finished the game 13-of-27, he did throw for 154 yards and was plagued by some drops, including a beautifully thrown fade to Isaiah Sweeney who was unable to make the over-the-shoulder grab.

    Sweeney did open the game with a great catch, a 46-yarder down the sideline to set up the early scoring try.

    Daniel Spencer was the top target of both Piland and reserve signal caller Bram Kohlhausen. The sophomore made five grabs for 69 yards, including an impressive catch and run of 18 yards where he bulled through a pair of tackles for the score.

    Houston finished the scrimmage with four different quarterbacks throwing touchdowns. Kohlhausen hit redshirt freshman Casey Martin in the back of the endzone for a six-yard score and Crawford Jones hit Wayne Beadle on a perfectly-thrown corner route (37 yards). Drew Hollingshead finished the scoring with a 10-yard TD throw as well.
